Sound Garden — The Rosebud’s House Band
This summer, the pavilion of the Fondation Beyeler park will once again resonate to the pulsating beats and melodies of our “Sound Garden.” Every Wednesday, visitors savoring the balmy evening air over a cool drink will get to enjoy the music of a line-up both regional and national, ranging from jazz and canzoni to disco and Hawaiian melodies. What better way to while away those precious mid-week hours than with the varied program of this year’s “Sound Garden” in the relaxed atmosphere of the museum’s park?
On this evening, The Rosebud’s House Band will present a repertoire that covers the entire spectrum of all that Ragtime has to offer. With its virtuoso fusion of different genres, the trio made up of Lennard Fiehn (clarinet), Martin Theurillat (guitar), and Thomas Fuller (bass) conjures up the unique energy and atmosphere of the American Midwest at every concert. Ragtime was the leading style of entertainment in the pre-jazz days of the Gilded Age in America. And it was then, in 1889, that the Rosebud Café first opened in St. Louis (MO). Hitting the keys was either proprietor and pianist Tom Turpin himself or one of his buddies, like Scott Joplin and Joe Jordan. At their side was always the house band consisting of clarinet, guitar, and double bass. More than 100 years later, The Rosebud’s House Band brings that legendary St. Louis spirit back to life, at the same time returning Ragtime to its roots.
This event is free.
